Focusing issue with DA 35 macro

Hello everyone. I purchased a used DA 35 macro a few months ago and have had no issues with it until today. This morning it even worked fine. I went out this afternoon and now the lens won't focus on anything further away than a few inches. If I focus on something like an inch away from the lens, the scale is showing almost 2 meters distance. I can also hear like a scraping or squeezing noise in th lens when I focus manually. Anyone have this issue? Thanks
